At the beginning of March, we were very happy to meet a class of Hawaiian students from Kamehameha school, Honolulu. They were coming back from Rapa Nui where they welcomed a famous traditional canoe called Hokule’a, and were lucky to have to time during their transit in Tahiti. They decided to use this time to share their culture and passion for nature, and to meet local communities.
First, Alice, our marine biologist, welcomed students at the organisation for a program on polynesian marine wildlife and learned about the richness of polynesian biodiversity.
Then, students went to a local highschool for a traditional performance with songs and dances. It was a beautiful moments of sharing.
